Research Project: Staffing and Operation for National Clonal Repositories for Plant Germplasm

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00013-001-00-D
Project Type: In-House Appropriated

Start Date: Oct 1, 2018
End Date: Sep 30, 2023

Objective:
To staff and operate units of the National Clonal Plant Germplasm Repository System thus providing for safe storage of national plant germplasm resources

Approach:
Clonal repositories of economically important tree fruit and nut crops and clonally propagated vegetable crops been established. The NPS Germplasm Matrix Team reviews specific plans and recommends release of funds held at Headquarters which have been appropriated for this specific purpose. When a need has been met, funds are "rolled over" to another high priority clonal repository activity.
